SÉRAPHIN OU LES JAMBES NUES

Film Notes

To succeed the series La Vie drôle, between May 1921 and February 1922 Feuillade directed a series of six ‘ciné-vaudevilles’ starring the comedian Georges Biscot (1889-1944). Biscot had been an operative at the Pathé laboratories and a projectionist at the Bobino music hall before becoming a music hall singer. He was performing a Charlie Chaplin impersonation when he was discovered by Jacques Feyder and put into films in 1916. The films in the Belle humeur series were all filmed in Nice. Séraphin ou les jambes nues is the wildest vaudeville from the series. Following a series of unfortunate accidents, the eminently respectable Séraphin, the meticulous and correct manager in an insurance company, finds himself trouserless in the middle of the street.
